I have a large USB thumb drive and a couple external hard drives, so no sweat – just use them to migrate everything. So when my brother told me he would… Read More

    Review: Targus USB Hub for Mac

    Yeah, I know, it’s a USB hub. But this little guy from Targus is pretty neat. It’s geared towards the Mac crowd with its color scheme, but that shouldn’t deter Windows or Linux folk. Read More

  • Skooba, Targus working on TSA-friendly gear bags

    Anyone that’s traveled with their laptop knows what a pain in the ass security is because you’re required to take out your laptop when going through the x-ray machine.

Targus and Skooba… Read More

    Targus DEFCON 1 More Flexible Than The Average Laptop Lock


    The product’s name sounds a bit more threatening than the device actually is. The $24.99 Targus DEFCON 1 is in fact a retractable cable lock for notebooks. And while it does feature the protection of a galvanized steel cable and a resettable, 4-digit combination-lock that allows for more than 10,000 different codes, it will not authorize you to use nuclear weapons. A lock slot… Read More
